at the international monetary fund, annie lowry an economic policy reporter for "the new york times." steven moore, editorial writer for "the wall street journal." ken, you tear financial crisis guru here. forget the politics. just give us the math. if washington fails to avert the cliff, the worst-case scenario will be the combination of tax hikes and spending cuts. what does that do to our economy? >> well, if they don't come to a deal and then sit there all next year and don't come to a deal, we will go back into recession. it will be very, very ugly. and the united states is one of the few bright spots in the world and it will be ugly to have the whole world go into recession. but i don't think that's likely. i think if we pass for a month then they'll eventually pass something. but it shows the dysfunction in washington of not being able to pass anything. by the way, ali, the debt ceiling's coming up. they're not agreeing on that. so even if they agree on this, then in a month or two they're going to be in the same position on the debt ceiling. >> and our debt ceiling actually comes to a head

presidential candidate howard dean, steve moore of the "wall street journal" editorial board, author of "return to prosperity." steve, i begin with you. we have from the "wall street journal" editorial page costco's dividend ta dividend as tax epiphany. taxes matter, steve. even though there are a lot of people in this world who think not. >> they matter a whole hell of a lot. it was very predictable these companies would be starting to pay deluges of dividends now. if you pay them now your shareholders only pay 15%. if you wait six weeks they have to pay as high as 40, 42, 45% depending on where that rate ends up. so taxes do matter. it's affecting behavior. let me sayhist my good friend howard dinos this, laimplarry. when he was a governor he cut taxes not raised them to make his state more productive. you should be advising this president not to raise those rates. >> steve i was hoping to get some help from you. you know very well, one of the things we can both agree on the deficit is out of control. >> that's for sure. >> you know as well as i do that the best deal for deficit hawks, leavin

and entitlements. joining me now, democratic congresswoman gwen moore of wisconsin, a member of the house budget committee. thanks for joining me. >> thanks for having me, tam rochblt. >> we got word from aides, speaker boehner, going to ohio tomorrow, whether that might impact communication with the president concerning the fiscal cliff, the speaker says ohio has both cell phone service and airports so if the president wants to talk or meet, it won't be a problem at all. at this point, nothing is scheduled. what does that mean to you about the talks at this point? >> my read is the republicans and john boehner, in order to get his caucus involved, they are insisting on getting the ryan budget and the romney budget plan through by negotiation fiat. they didn't whip the election but they still want -- they want to win by negotiation fiat. i think that they are -- in order to save face, they are demanding that there be severe cuts to medicare, social security. i think they want the change, the president to agree to the chained cpi for social security, raise the medicare age and wants to back down
, but then complain about people who arm themselves. >> it's the same thing that michael moore did when he came out and he had a film on down with capitalism but yet profited off it. it's the same thing. >> it's not the same thing. he's basically saying that hollywood does have an influence in our culture. for example, jaws. it came out a hundred years ago when i was a little kid. now, what is there? there's a jaws ride at disneyland. it used to be such a terribly violent movie. there's an influence in our culture that these movies play out in video games and rides in disneyland. sure, if you don't want your kid to watch it, fine. your kid will be exposed to some level of violence at some point in their lifetime. >> sean: look, i don't have a problem with adult movies. i have watched them. >> what kind of adult movies, sean. >> not that one. >> sean: i stepped right in the middle of that. i don't have a problem with adult-themed movies, not the ones you're thinking about. in other words, i go to the movies, but there's certain movies -- this now comes to parenting. on the one hand they can't compla

is on taxes. so we ask again, what now? steven moore, steven moore writes for "the wall journal," also on the editorial board. welcome to you. >> hi, brooke. >> the way speaker boehner seemed to put it, if we heard it correctly, it is up to the democrats. the president, the senate democrats, to craft this tax and spending plan, i should say, that can please the house republicans or we're off the cliff. >> well, you know, the amazing thing about this whole debate going on now five or six weeks since the election was held in early november, the most amazing thing, here we are on what, december 21st and no close torrer to resolution. you raised an important point, brooke, that the house and senate are basically adjourned. they're gone until after christmas. and that leaves us, what, four or five days to settle this. >> ticking, right? right? >> so -- pardon me? >> time is ticking away. >> right, the clock is ticking and they don't get back until december 26th, december 27th. here is my prediction to you, brooke. i think they'll come to resolution on december 31. maybe a few hours before t

moore joins us to talk about that and separate fact from fiction when it comes to the numbers. >> thank you for asking that question about the spending side of the ledger. the laos two or three weeks the discussion has been about raising taxes and no discussion about reducing the amount -- the outgo. >> let's start there. if we stopped overspending, what would it take for the government to get lined up, to get rid of the debt and deficit. >> we've dug ourselves into a deep hole. when i came to washington we talked about the budget, deficit in the billions, now in the trillions of dollars. part of the problem is the numbers are large but it's a million, million dollars. the debt is $6 trillion and we're borrowing $1.1 trillion a year. the problem the president faces, even if he gets his tax increase on the rich in negotiations, and he may very well. that leaves him with a trillion dollars budget deficit. so even if we do the tax increases, mr. president, what comes next? that's where we have to start addressing the spending side. >> the conversation a lot of folks don't want to have. rep

're not in the union. stephen moore, "wall street journal." who would be next? >> there are a number of states neighbors to michigan really looking at this legislation. i'll name a few to you, bill. pennsylvania, ohio, west virgina, states like that are competing against southern states. remember a lot of jobs and a lot of manufacturing has moved from the midwest, the kind of rust belt of america to the south in part because those southern states are right-to-work. can i mention one other thing if i could, bill, about this issue that is important? bill: sure. >> there is so much misinformation what it means to be a right-to-work state. i want your viewers to know this, if you're a right-to-work state it does not ban unions, bill. simply means that workers who work for a unionized company have the right as an individual to join the union or not. it does not ban unions. bill: to be more specific, if you're not a member of a union, in michigan you're required to pay union dues. >> that is exactly right. bill: under this law you're no longer required to pay dues for something you're not gets servi

and fortune and try to turn that statistic around. derrick moore and stephanie perry moore. authors of the lookwood lions series of books. appreciate you being with us today. good to see you. >> thank you. >> thank you for having us. >> i want to hear more about the series of books momentarily. a very broad question we could probably spend hours on. how did we get to the point where 77% of 8th graders are reading below grade level? how did this happen? >> a great question to ask. how did it happen? you said it. kids are doing so many other things nowadays but not spending time taking advantage of their own education. great textbooks and educators and in the best school buildings but you they have to decide internally they want to take advantage of getting their own education. kids aren't finding success and therefore they are not really trying and that is what is making them fail. >> this lockwood lions series of books tries to address the fundamental issue by making reading interesting, right? >> we are so excited. we spent a lot of time in the schools and have is been asking the y
, not so much. bill: some of these warnings now the national debt is nearing dangerous levels. steven moore is here with the "wall street journal." what does it mean that the warnings are there, steve. >> the amazing thing about this debt. i was thinking when i first came to washington which was in the early 1980s, the debt level was about $2.5 trillion. now we are at 16.2 trillion. by the way every president goods back to dwight eisenhower has promised that they will balance the budget and the debt keeps getting bigger and bigger. the real tragedy is that over the last five years the debt has increased by almost $6 trillion. that is more money than was borrowed from 1776 through the year 1976. bill: that's ridiculous. >> it is a tragic situation. bill: what is the danger in this economically speaking for us. >> the danger is two fold. one is if you look at the budget right now and we continue on this pace of borrowing we are expected to do, trillion dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see we are looking at somewhere in the neighborhood of a trillion dollars each year bill in only ser
on what is already a fragile economic recovery. stephen moore joins us. when economic growth was comparatively pretty good, this the president said no, now you don't want to raise tax rates because the economy is fragile. gdp is worse now, is that? >> i think almost exactly two years ago, the president said the economy is too fragile to raise taxes on anyone. so what you have essentially was a deal that was put together. remember back in december of 2010 when we were facing a very similar situation where they agreed to extend all the tax cuts for two years. by the way, that is why we are facing this new fiscal cliff. it is infuriating to business owners. i have been talking to a lot of them last couple of weeks. this is banana republic type of politics. no one knows what it will look like. it makes it impossible for businesses to do planning, purchasing equipment, hiring workers. you are seeing the impact on the stock market already where we have a lousy 10 days with stocks because everybody is in this kind of state of fear and trepidation that we are going to go over this cl
before you even get to the stimulus plan and other spending items. ethan pollak, steven moore, you guys ready to play? >> sure. >> we are. >> i know you spoke to our producer today and he seems to think nobody can beat him at this game. the best in the world. let's get straight to it. steven, a few weeks ago, you were optimistic. so was erskine bowles. the president was. john boehner was. congress' approval ratings seemed to go up because everybody seems so conciliatory. is this going to get done? >> i very rarely admit that i was wrong, but i'm starting to get worried that maybe i was wrong. that these sides are further apart now than they were two weeks ago, which is hard to believe. i think this is going to get done. i don't think we're going to go over the fiscal cliff. republicans have put some proposals on the table moving in barack obama's direction. i don't know exactly what the game that tim geithner was playing yesterday. not only, and thank you, erin, for getting some of this math right. the president said 2.5 for every tax increase and yesterday he came up with $4 of new tax
"paying the price." steven moore, and jackie calmes. let's just ask you two, first, so set the stage. will it be armageddon? should we all start hoarding gold? you get such differing opinions about what would happen. >> well, january 1, no, no big deal. particularly if the treasury decides to freed holding schedules. but by the end of january, things start to get uncomfortable, by end of february, we have the debt ceiling, and that would be cataclysmic. >> this does seem to put a little more time on the plate of congress, which sends to expand the time you give -- >> look, i think you have very different ideological views. i think raising tax rates is harmful, could cause a recession. i think the spending cuts would be positive for the economy. the democrats believe the opposite of that. this is a dispute over very big ideas. this is not a small dispute, it's a dispute about the future of our federal budget and how we will operate in washington. >> as we said earlier, there is a consensus that they will get something, it's the congress, you know. is that consensus beginning to -- >>
